Full-Time and Part-Time Formats: Students can pursue the MRED program in either a full-time or part-time format. Full-time students complete the program in three semesters (12 months) and part-time students complete the program in four or more semesters (15+ months). Both formats are designed to meet the needs of working students. All necessary classes are offered in the evening so students can keep their full-time jobs.
Class Availability: MRED courses are offered primarily in the evenings. A limited number of daytime electives are available. Once admitted, your academic advisor can assist with mapping out a course of study that will match your needs with class schedules.
Master of Science Requirement: MRED students must complete a capstone project to satisfy the Master of Science degree requirements. A master’s thesis is not required.
Enrollment Options: Fall and spring semesters
Dual Degrees: Students can complete a Master of Architecture, Master of City and Metropolitan Planning or a Juris Doctor as a dual degree with their MRED.
